Jack White: No White Stripes reunion

March 24, 2012 at 3:13 PM

LOS ANGELES, March 24 (UPI) -- U.S. musician Jack White said he has no interest in reforming the White Stripes and would only do so if he and former band mate Meg White went bankrupt.

Jack White told music Web site NME.com there was "absolutely no chance" of a reunion with Meg White, to whom he was married from 1996 to 2000.

"I couldn't see any reason to ever do that," said White, who was born John Gillis and took Meg White's last name when they married. "I'm not the kind of person that would retire from baseball and come out of retirement the next year.

"If we were forced to change our mind about that, I can only imagine the reason being if we went bankrupt or really needed the cash, which would be a really sad thing. I would probably be issuing an apology along with the announcement of the show dates."

Jack White's debut solo album "Blunderbuss" is scheduled to be released April 24, and he will kick off his U.S. tour May 15 in Nashville, The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.
